Multicast trees are used in a variety of applications, such as publish/subscribe systems or content distribution networks. Existing algorithms for ad-hoc networks typically produce multicast trees requiring many nodes to act as relays even though they are not part of the multicast group. In this paper, we propose an algorithm for building efficient multicast trees that strives to minimize the number of non-member relay nodes and the number of transmissions required to reach all the group… CONTINUE READING
